This is a challenging and well thought-out course. I'd played it twice before and enjoyed it. On this Sunday afternoon, however, it took five hours for a two-ball with buggy. Somone informed the proshop that two or three four-balls were playing desperately slowly but only "had a chat with them" and failed to speed them up at all. All very frustrating. The three-ball in front were slaughtering the course and spent more time waiting on the tee than playing the hole.
The buggy cost £30 which the pro said was "good value". I typically pay £15-25. The buggy itself is GPS-programmed and spent the entire round bossing us about because we had the temerity to go 'near' a bunker or green (and 'near' was in no way 'near'). On the third hole it insisted I leave the fairway; I went to the path on the left; when I arrived 'near' the green (389 yards) and putted out I had to return 200 yards and somehow cross the fairway to get to the next tee.
I doubt very much that we'll go back there.

Played today with my sons really looking forward to it. However stuck behind a society, some had never played before. 2nd hole guy took 4 shots to reach fairway. They never let us play through hence over 5 hours. Groups behind where stacking up and some walked off.

Fully understand they need business but marshalling would have helped.

Please avoid this course if they are not going to Marshall it properly. What turned out to be the longest round ever.
Get your act together Donnington Gove golf course.

First time I've played Donnington Grove...

The signage could have been a little better, as there are some walks between holes but all-in-all, I loved it. It was quiet, but the layout meant I barely noticed other golfers on the course.

All of the holes were different, presenting different challenges. If I'd known the holes a little better, I'd surely have plotted my way around a little more.

Course looked well kept - still some fairways a little parched but considering the record summer, I thought it wasnt' too bad. (staff did say it had been worse)

Greens were excellent, receptive but still quick.

Loved the course and will definitely play again.

Ok so this ain’t muirfield but..., if you fancy a fun blast around an easy but long course and you only have £13 then there is nowhere better!
Wide fairways, very soft greens and some well placed trees make it fun.

On the downside, the greens are poor, the bunkers dreadful, it’s generally tatty and the toilets jabsolutely wreak!!!

It’s a shame it is not what it once was...,, but was so much fun....., and so so cheap!

If anyone picked up a callaway 1 on the 15th..,,,,

He would play this course again.

I love this course for it’s interesting holes and great views and the deals on TeeOffTimes are marvellous.
Unfortunately after this visit I am not sure when I will next be back. On the fairways and tees all you got were either small tufts of grass or bare patches. When is there chance now for this to change this season.
